Washington, Oct. D. Collection of the new tonnage tax of two cents prc-M-rlbed for in- the recently jmssed Payne-Aldrleh tariff act begins today. The new law provides that the ton nage duty of two cents per ton, not to exceed in the aggregate 10 cents per ton In any one year, be Imposed at every entry on all vessels from any foreign port or place in North Amer ica, central America, the West Indies Islands, the Rahaina. islands or the coast of South America, bordering on the Carribean sea, or Newfoundland. and a duty of six cents per ton, not to exceed 30 cents per ton per annum, be Imposed at every entry on all vessels from any other foreign port, not, how ever, to Include vessels In distress or not engaged In trade.

MEANS FIVE YEAR SENTENCE Unless Supreme Court Reverses To day's Decision Chicago Banker Will Have to Go to Prison Counsel Have Thirty Days in Which to File Appli cation for Re-Hesring. Chicago, ict. .V The verdict of tlej trial court which found John R. Walsh guilty of misapplication of funds .f the Chicago National bank, was af filfted by the United. States circuit court of appeals here today. Counsel for Walsh in the a .peal laLl greatest stress on what they alleged was a lack of criminal intent on the part of the defendant. The opinion ,.f the court of appeals, written by Jude Humphrey and handed dwn by Jud.' Grossi up, is brief and confined almost wholly to the question of criminal in tent. The allegation that Juror Palme-r was unduly influenced is dismis sed with a word and but H'C rime : wasted in eliminating the allegation of Inconsistency r! : l'.l. - ns there Is ) the vetdict as to tie matter charged in the saj s the opinion, "the b- disturbed. If the , uqmnrioy. "A : (consistency in .distance of the various counts," - verdict will n t gravamen of th'- charge In each count, on which th-r; has been a verdi -t of guilty, is th" same, there is no incon-iteney In the verdict." As to Juror Palmer the opinion reads: "The record does not show any improper influence worked upon th" jury. The return made to the court was in fact tin- verdict of twelve jur ors. The allcnipt by one of I hern af- , ! terwards to Impeach ids verdict can hive no consideration. This doctrine is well established and N basAd U"T1 lea -on as well as upon authority." In the instructions given th jury bv Judge Anderson in the trial court tb blgher tribunal finds no i-rmr. As to lack "f criminal Intent th" opinion rcaiN: 'Under section Ti2o' there could be misapplication of bank fund- by an officer which would t.e Innocent and m-t criminal and tlp-to ( ould be mis application which under the statutes would be criminal. Whit would show the difference between misapplications which were criminal nnd those which wen- not; what wou'd show innocence or guilty; good fai.h r bad faith; the court sought by in struction carefully to define and we think did r.iirly define." The eleventh lmiir attempt of th-- defense to file additional citations de signed to show lack f criminal intent came to naught. Th matter was tak en under consideration by those con cerned before the court opened anl the d eision reached that low argu ments would in tio wise alter the opin ion as already written. Counsi 1 Top Walsh have thirty divs in whielT to tU application for a re hearing by the court of appeals. Mean while be will be at liberty under hi present bonds J.'.o.ooo.
